Unlocked Android Cell Phones & Smartphones

Experience the Advantages of Android Unlocked Smartphones

Not tied to a service provider, Android unlocked cell phones give users desirable flexibility. Furthermore, the unlocked phones maintain all Android features. Many affordable options are available on eBay.

How do Android unlocked cell phones work?

Most cell phones are sold with a locked connection to a particular cell phone service provider. The service provider will often sell the phone at a good price but recoup the cost of the phone by committing the user to a service contract. An Android unlocked phone is a smartphone that is not tied to a particular cell phone service provider. Unlocked cell phones are legal in the US. This gives the owner of the phone the flexibility to buy a SIM card and choose the service provider.

Are there different types of unlocked phones?

There are two types of unlocked phones.

  • Factory unlocked - These phones have been shipped from the factory to a vendor who will sell them without a service commitment. They are often costly because the seller will not have a guaranteed service contract through which to recover the cost of the phone.
  • Unlocked - Once a phone has been completely paid for, usually through a service provider contract, the provider will often be willing to unlock the phone. If your provider is not willing to unlock your phone, you can search for an online phone unlock service.
